Amiri’s vast global experience has prepared her for this role as most recently she served as an international programs coordinator for IES Abroad, a not-for-profit study abroad provider with over 35 locations worldwide based in Chicago, Illinois. There, she managed a portfolio of overseas centers and over 15 programs throughout Europe and Latin America, updated the website, created student’s pre-departure material, and oversaw various academic processes like course registration and syllabi.
Prior to IES Abroad, Amiri lived in Madrid, Spain, for two years where she taught English and developed cultural activities for both private and public schools while completing her master’s degree. She says that living and working in Spain was one of the highlights of her career because it helped her find her passion for international education and the study abroad field.
As a project coordinator, Amiri will be responsible for recruitment and programming support for the International Business Dual Degree (IBDD) program, managing students coming to Poole as international exchange students, coordinating incoming summer study abroad programs, helping support the GLAM program, and contributing to the overall mission and operation of the Office of Global Programs.
